Yesterday we got a letter in the mail from our mortgage company. It contained our credit score.
I haven't felt so much anxiety opening an envelope since I was waiting for college acceptances! I had to take a few deep breaths and with my heart pounding, I ripped that baby open.
Woo hoo! Our hard work has paid off. Our credit score is up 100 points from two years ago. And it is pretty damn good.
It's funny how much our self worth can be wrapped up in scores like that. I suppose it starts in grade school and never really stops.
I'm putting that letter form our mortgage company on the fridge. We deserve a big gold star.
